  1. I used to get at least one new cystic acne spot on my back (after quitting pill) every other day. I was so sick of trying stuff from the derm that didn't work so I tried acupuncture and it has been amazing. I got three in a month and the ones that do come disappear much faster and do not scar. She has also treated the scars. It's amazing!!

  8. I have chest acne, and cystic acne on my back. After numerous treatments from dermatologists that did nothing, I tried acupuncture. (Nothing to lose right?) I used to get a new cyst/zit on back at least every other day. I went almost a month without getting one after starting acupuncture. She's even treating the scarring. The couple I have gotten disappear much faster and do not scar. I would highly recommend trying it!
  9. Ripon, are you still experiencing body acne? I started acupuncture treatments because I was sick of all the chemical treatments given to me by the dermatologists that did nothing for me. I feel like I have to share my experience bc I want other to know there is another option out there. I used to get a new cyst on my back at least every other day. My back was covered. After my first treatment, I got two new ones. After that, I didn't get another one for 22 days! She is even treating the scars. I
  10. I am experiencing the same thing after coming off birth control. I was on it for a really long time. It didn't start until about a month or so after I stopped the pill. It started on my face (which isn't that bad now) and then my chest, then my back. I did have acne before I went on bc though. It completely cleared off my chest (it has been just about 5 months) and is still on my back. I use BenzEFoam from the derm on my back (put it on, rinse) twice a day, and then Paula's choice Gel Exfoliant
  11. If you can get to a dermatologist, ask for BenzEFoam 9.8%. It will heal active acne. If you can't get that, get PanOxyl wash which you can buy over the counter. I put it on and leave it on for a few minutes before washing it off. Then after the shower (twice per day, same routine in the morning as at night) use Paula's choice Gel Exfoliant 2% BHA. This really helps to prevent new ones. It's also supposed to help with cell turnover (healing scars) which I just started to notice. Paula's choice ha
  12. Hi Sam, I started using Paula's choice (ordered online) Gel Exfoliant 2% BHA on my back. It truly helps prevent new cysts on my back. I use it twice a day. I also got a benzoyl peroxide foam 9.8% from my dermatologist. It's called BenzEFoam and penetrates better than over the counter. If you can't get that I would use PanOxyl wash from Walgreens. It definitely helps on my back. I hope this helps!
  13. Hi there, I'm a 28 yo female who stopped taking birth control about 5 months ago. When I first stopped it was fine for about a month and then I started to break out not unlike you are around my mouth. My dermatologist said it was "acne's cousin," called peri-oral dermatitis. It lasted for a couple weeks and hasn't been back (she gave me a product called Avar foam and something else called fanacea. I tried the first one for a couple days and it only seemed to irritate it but I have very sensitive
